Spicers Peak, with its fireplaces and trailing vines and gorgeous sunsets and crisp air, is something of a best-kept secret in Queensland’s Scenic Rim. It’s also one of Australia’s luxury lodges, just like Saffire Freycinet (#5), qualia (#10), Lizard Island (#11), Southern Ocean Lodge (#31) and more – pretty good company, no? Housing 10 luxurious suites and two private lodges, all absolutely lovely respites (some with in-room fireplaces), you basically want for nothing up here on the peak of the mountain. Unwind in the divine Anise Spa, go on one of the property’s many rambling walks, and – of course – dine at on-site hatted restaurant, The Peak. “Enjoying fresh pickings from the chef’s garden is a foodie’s delight”, says Kerry Heaney, who indeed confesses herself to be exactly that. And she’s right; it really is. From $499 per night for bed and breakfast. More info:
